What is the maximum age to immigrate to Canada?
Since long decades Canadian immigration has been popularized among immigration candidates. As compared to other countries, its immigration policies are well-suited for most of them, which lead to the assemblage of application forms in visa offices for Canada’s immigration every year.
However, despite having liberal policies and multiple immigration programs, the selection percentage of applications for Canada’s immigration is not so good. Whether it’s Federal or provincial, each Canadian immigration program has its set of prerequisites. If the candidate’s profile gets matched with the eligibility criteria of the applied program, then only his/her profile is considered for further steps of the immigration process.
In general, there are some common factors based on which each profile gets evaluated and assessed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score in the pool of candidates. These factors include age, educational background, professional experience and linguistic knowledge in English or French.
Among all, age is the very first selection factor which decides whether you are eligible to apply for the program to immigrate to Canada or not. Canada is one of the largest countries in the world for dealing in labor-extensive activities like farming, mining, and export of natural resources like oil, metal and more. So, the primary goal of this bulk immigration in Canada is to attract foreign nationals who can contribute to minimizing the shortage the gaps in its labor market.
Moreover, the productivity of the market is directly proportional to the age of working individuals. The larger the number of young people, the higher will be the productivity.
Now, if we talk about the contribution of the age factor in Canada’s immigration, then we all are aware of the fact that most of the immigration programs are point-based. Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC) is the most popular category of Federal Express entry through which skilled and experienced foreign national get access to enter Canadian boundaries. It requires a minimum of 67 points out of 100 to become eligible to apply for the Canada Immigration program.
|Level of education||25|
Among other selection factors of FSWC, age factor contributes a total of maximum 12 points to the age group ranging from 18 years to 35 years.

|Age (in years)||points|
|18 – 35||12|
So, the applicants who are soon going to enter their 40’s need to apply now as the chances of Canada’s immigration get decreased on the increase in age factor.
Remember, a candidate needs 67 points only for entering the profile in the pool of candidates; however, if the candidate wishes to receive Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian PR through the government, then he/she needs to score a good CRS score out of 1200 in the point-assessment table. The CRS table comprises of four components including, Core human capital factors, Accompanying spouse or common-law partner factors, Transferability factors and Additional factors together to make a total of 1200 points.
|CRS Factors||Maximum points without spouse||Maximum points with spouse|
|Core human capital factors including age, education level, language proficiency and work experience||500||460|
|Accompanying spouse or common-law partner factors||0||40|
In the CRS table, age contributes to the maximum of 110 points in the without-spouse case and 100 points in the with-spouse case.
Contribution of age factor in the CRS point table for Canada’s immigration:
|Age (in years)||Points awarded with spouse/common-law partner||Points awarded without spouse/common-law partner|
|17 or less||0||0|
|20 to 29||100||110|
|45 or more||0||0|
From the above table, it is clear that the maximum points are awarded to young candidates having age between 20-29 years. And, there is no benefit of applying for Canada’s immigration above 45 years of age. Moreover, it is worth noting here that each year in age factor makes the difference.
For instance, if you are 38 years old now, then you will get 61 credit points in your CRS score for the age factor. However, next year, when you turn 39, you CRS score for age factor would drop down by 6 points, which will be 55 points only.
